    My heart goes out to the family of such a great lady..
    Her sense of humor will forever make me smile, thinking about her quirky comments.
    I am grateful for having had her in my life as long as I did and I am feeling she is finally at peace and thankful for the love that her husband (my uncle) Glenn shared with her.
    We shall meet again one day sweet lady…
